Financial Assistance

The purpose of grants and financial assistance offered by Local Enterprise Office is to help job creation and exports in micro businesses (1-10 employees) start ups and growing businesses in Dublin city. With the growing success of establishing a true enterprise culture in the Capital and with many more entrepreneurs accessing the services of the LEO, there is increasing demand on our financial resources. For this reason, there is a growing emphasis on providing repayable loans instead of grants. This  policy enables the LEO to recycle its financial resources and make them available at a later date for other new and deserving enterprises.  

Please note:

  • a current Business Tax Clearance Certificate is required for every type of funding.
  • no retrospective payments are allowed ie you must get approval for the funding, spend the money/ hire the employee, then make a claim for the approved grant amount. This means you will need to source other funding to pay for your business requirements to drawdown on the grant funding.
